Don't get stuck at the end of the turn order constantly. Great speculation game and theme.

Fun game. The inclusion of stocks raises Manilla above other wagering games. Bumped from an 8 to a 9 after five plays.

There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

It's a pretty straightforward betting game, yet it felt "fresh" and new to me, I don't think I've ever seen the things that this game does. There's a lot of things going on, a lot of different things to bet on. I like the tension that can occur between "temporary-yet-competing allies" - when you and someone else will both profit from a boat arriving, so you join forces to coax it in. It's absolutely beautifully produced. Very exciting game, you can feel the energy crackle every time the dice are tossed, followed by subsequent groans or cheers.

Really fun game with betting mechanisms. Some luck may ultimately determine the outcome, but fun to make decisions along the way. Fun bidding phase in each round. How much are you willing to pay to gain some control. You may pay a lot and then have the dice decide something else! Lots of fun stuff going on in a simple game. I hope it becomes available again.

It's really just a gambling/horse racing game, but Manila is a heck of a lot better than most and there are subtle layers of betting strategies hiding behind the luck of the dice. The self-appointed internet pundits will scoff at the luck element but there isn't much more here than in Settlers. There is a refined, almost classical sense to Manila- it feels somewhat like an older German game but given the stagnation and mediocrity that is starting to plague that sector it's nice to play a game that could be considered a return to form for the genre. It's a fantastically fun game, gripping and engaging through every turn. This should probably be Spiel Des Jahres, it's considerably more interesting and replayable than 80 Days.

I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed this game. I had seen it played one other time and was curious. When the opportunity arose to try it out, it paid me off with a very enjoyable time. I like the gambling element, the auction, and just the fun of it.

Rating based on one 5 player game, which was a riot of improbable events. That game I'd rate a 9 or 10, but can't believe that every game is as entertaining as that one.

Really enjoyed this one. Detailed 8 page manual but don't let that put you off - it's dead easy to play! Typical Zoch quality components. Reasonable luck element but still enough choices to make this a fun game.

A fun bet on racing boats game with a little stock market element thrown in. Since it's short and fun to socialize on while playing I had to give it an 7.

Wow I liked this game a lot more than I thought I would. Cleaver game of basically betting on various things to happen. Throw in some RANDOMNESS in the dice and bam great little game.

An interactive betting-style game with a cute theme and components. Not the most strategic game ever, but definitely a fun one to play. Would be pretty good for new gamers.
